    Let's see, over/under on how long this takes to get nasty?

    Anyway, they release different games in the US and UK, so yes. Donkey Kong Country has been out in the UK for a while, but will be released today in the US.

    As far as future releases...nobody knows, but the release of a game in one region is probably a good indicator that it will be out in other regions before too long...

    yes. the US is updated first and then the UK. but the games will differ randomly with the updates but nearly all of the game should be there for both.

    There are slight variations to what each region gets each week. America gets a new batch of games on Monday mornings and Europe gets them midnight Friday morning. Most of the time Europe mostly gets what America got, but sometimes games have been released at different times for different regions. For example, Europe has had Donkey Kong Country for quite a while now but it has only today been made available in America, while America got Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past a fortnight ago and Europe doesn't yet have it.
